        GRAPHIC SCENES KICKAPOO INDIAN LIFE IN THE SOUTH AND WEST

      New Haven: [Benton Litho. Co.], 1887. 16pp. of chromolithograph plates plus front and back wrappers. Oblong 12mo. Original color pictorial wrappers. Wrappers worn, with some tears and small chips. A few stains, but rather neat and clean internally. Good. Illustrated with chromolithographs of Indian scenes stolen from CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO. This pamphlet is interesting not only as an example of the peddling of "Indian cures," but for the appropriation and continued resonance of Catlin's depictions of western Indians. Healy and Bigelow styled themselves as Indian Agents, but their main business was dealing in Kickapoo Indian medicines from offices in downtown New Haven. OCLC locates only four copies. Scarce.

      Thebes, 1300. 4 x 2 inches. Torn strip of undyed plain weave linen mummy wrap. Well worn from original use. Fragile. In envelope. 4 x 2 inches. Mummy Cloth with early Metropolitan Museum of Art Provenance. Inscription on envelope, "Mummy cloth of Juono firte - an Egyptian lady who lived during 20th dynasty (1200 or 1300 B.C.) found at Thebes - unwrapped at Metropolitan Museum of Art, by Dr Prime, January 8th 1887. (Cloth given to me by Miss di Cesnola)"In 1886 the Metropolitan Museum of Art, under the direction of its first director Luigi Palma di Cesnola, made its first purchase of Egyptian works of art, a purchase which is memorable because it was the beginning of the relationship between the Museum and M. Gaston Maspero, the Director General of Antiquities in Egypt. Most likely, Mr. Cesnola's wife who was a member of the institution was there for the unwrapping of a new acquisition done by the first vice president of the museum Dr. William C. Prime. Dr. Prime was also on the committee on objects of art in 1887, and with his insistence Princeton university established a department of art history in which he was chair. A fascinating piece of Egyptian burial practice with a provenance of the established direction of the Metropolitan Museum of Art during one of the most important acquisition periods of the museum.

Walker & Co., Arists Materials and Fine Stationery, 538 Washington St., Boston," a branch store of Frost & Adams, opposite the Bijou Theater. Internally clean, featuring the works of H. M.

        Newmarket. Tattersall's 1887

      London: Vanity Fair, 1887. Lib. Color lithograph. Sheet measures 15 x 21.5." This lovely print from the December 6, 1887 issue of Vanity Fair depicts an English paddock scene. A crowd of spectators and buyers surround the enclosure where a horse is being displayed. Tattersall's (now Tattersalls), founded in 1766, has been the main auctioneer of race horses in the United Kingdom and in Ireland. The print is in good condition with minor wear along the original folds and some foxing in the margins. The British Vanity Fair (1868--1914), a compendium and often critique of Victorian culture, is best known today for its lithographed caricatures of contemporary figures and issues. Its portrait series pictured and described--with both praise and caricature--prominent Victorian and Edwardian politicians, lawyers, doctors, and similar professionals. Their images, often accompanied literary and political articles, cultural reviews, serialized fiction, and other standard weekly magazine features. As the publication grew, it turned increasingly toward gossip as a topic.
